“For us it’s not good enough just to send a cool product. We want you as the recipient, and you as the customer to learn where that product comes from and connect with a woman maker doing something great. “

 

Take-Aways: 

  • You don’t have to have a perfect plan to make the leap into entrepreneurship.
  • Focus on just one thing everyday. If you finish that one thing, then you have had a successful day.
  • Except that everyday is going to have high highs and low lows.
  • Forget the Mom guilt and do what is best for your family.

"For anyone who feels like they have to have this huge plan in place before they jump, you don't. So much is going to change anyway after you dive into something like this".
